Mutiny Radio ** Happiness Is...** I'm putting on a brave face today, posting this post. Eighteen months ago, I never thought I'd be writing about my fertility woes. But I chose to bring up this subject because I'm tired of keeping it to myself. It shouldn't be a secret. Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter. - Martin Luther King Jr. You may remember, back in January, I told you about our miscarriage from the previous year. A planning frenzy commenced. Sometimes I have to remind myself that it actually did happen. A certain darkness is needed to see the stars. - Osho It's not an easy thing to admit to yourself you have a problem. Earlier this week, we met with a fertility specialist to discuss our next move. Be gentle with yourself. – Max Ehrmann When I first learned of our challenges, I was angry, shocked and confused. But I wouldn't let myself stay there for long and neither would Hal. Some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle and end. – Gilda Radner

Home / Blue Forest Tree Houses, Eco-lodges and Sustainable Buildings studio aisslinger - Home 50+ Chicago musicians. 12+ New bands. Announcing : The Chicago Sonic Coalition. The idea is simple : Gather over 60 Chicago musicians, and put their name in a hat. Publicly draw at random to form over 17 new bands. Give those bands over two months to prepare a 15-20 minute set of new music, then bring those acts in front of a live audience. Throw them together to write and practice songs, push creativity, and get people out of their comfort zones. The idea supposedly started in Cleveland as a multi-week event under the name “Lottery League”. Musicians from almost every genre of Chicago's music scene, from noise, to folk, garage rock, and singer-songwriter's came together to form what we'd like to call the “Chicago Sonic Coalition”. What remains, well, you'll just have to see live for yourself. We stand strong as a community of musicians, artists, and creative thinkers. BLASTED (Members of Absolutely Not / Cinchel / Plastic Boner Band) Be there.
